Functional Description

MPFQ is (yet another) library for computing in finite fields, with automatic generation of code for fields known at compile-time. It consists of roughly 18,000 lines of Perl code, which generate most of the C code. MPFQ is used in CADO-NFS, in particular for the linear algebra step during discrete logarithm computations.
